and israel are the top recipients of u.s. foreign aid. what kind of leverage does the u.s. have? >> president obama has pledged $1 billion in aid to the egyptian government. that money is incredibly important to the egyptians. their economy has been faltering. in addition, the egyptian military receives almost $1.3 billion per year from the united states. in addition, the egyptian government is looking for support from other actors, like the international monattorney fund and the european union. so all of that-- the money that the egyptian government needs, the u.s. leverage to try to get the egyptians to bring peace to to conflict. >> brennan: juan zarate, thank you. >> thank you. >> brennan: in egypt today, at least 49 children were killed when a train smashed into a school bus. 1190 miles sowpght of cairo. the force of the crash broke the bus in half, and the destruction made it difficult to count and identify bodies. the man in charge of closing the gates at the crossing has been arrested. authorities say he was sleeping when the bus crossed the tracks. two oil workers remain lost at sea

do to itself if washington allows us to go over the fiscal cliff. unemployment in the u.s. which has come down to to 20.9%, it could go up another 9%. according to a new research new york post poll, you clearly understand the danger of this fiscal cliff. 50% say it will have a major effect on the economy, 21% say a minor effect, 2% no effect, 10% say they don't know, which is why you're watching this right now. president obama says they're centering around increasing tax on the wealthy which will go a good way in increasing the revenue that he wants to raise in the next decade in an attempt to reduce the federal deficit. he wants to reinstate the bush tax cut which goes to the top 2% of earners. that would jump from 36% to 39%. he likes to say that's where it was during the clinton years. the second one would go from 36% to 39%. he's been focusing on this specific number since his reelection which suggests he may compromise on the actual rates in order to get a deal. there are other taxes as well he's talking about. taxes on investment gain would also go up. the capital gains tax wou
messages. last year, you have a press release that said the u.s. has not seen any spillover violence. saying that when we are acknowledging that our law enforcement has been engaged in a gun battle. we have had people killed. narcotics have been caught. that is what is competing this. we need to recognize it for what it is. transnational criminal organizations -- we cannot pursue them across the international border. we will put what ever it takes to defend the sovereignty -- >> he made a point that there was a bill to fund more border patrol agents. i think it is well-known that republicans in washington do not like to spend a lot of money. his comments were that members of your own party do not want to fund this initiative. >> people are tired of blaming parties. >> that is exactly what i just said. [laughter] before you did that, you blamed republicans.

zero, is if the government deficit is big enough to more than offset the trade deficit. if the u.s. is running trade deficits on the order of 4.5% of gdp, the government deficit has to be at least 4.5% of gdp, or the private sector will fall below zero. every single time. here is the cbo forecast. this is what is projected to happen to the government deficit if we hit the cliff. this is the alternative scenario. if we hit the cliff, the projection is that the government deficit will shrink to around 2% of gdp. deficits of 2% of gdp, together with trade deficits of 4.5%, in the private sector is by definition going to be in the negative. we are going to be running a deficit. here is the same image flipped over. it is the mirror image of that. it says that if the government reduces its deficit, it is reducing the surplus to the non-government sector. you have to be able to put these things in context. why does it matter? what difference does it make if the private sector is in surplus or deficit? it turns out it makes a big difference. p the private sector budget balance is shown her
of this in any way related to his affair. and the u.s. on track to be be the largest oil producer, but will the obama administration let it happen or turn an oil boom into a bust? welcome to the journal editorial report, i'm paul gigot. headed into friday, fiscal cliff talks with congressional leaders, president obama gave us a hit list of his negotiations strategies, repeating his intention to immediately raise tax rates on top earners. >> when it comes to the top 2%, what i'm not going to do is to extend further a tax cut for folks who don't need it which would cost close to a trillion dollars and it's very difficult to see how you make up that trillion dollars if we're serious about deficit reduction, just by closing loopholes and deductions. the math tends not to work. >> paul: but does the president's math add up? let's ask wall street journal columnist bill mcguerin, and analyst steve moore and washington columnist kim strassel. so, kim, the president won reelection, was this the hand of magnimty reaching out to the republicans? >> it's crazy, it's what the president says al

edit of how to refer to the facility. democrats say this explains why u.s. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, said on a sunday talk show after the attack that it was a mob protesting an anti-muslim video and not a terror strike. republicans contend the obama administration wanted to downplay terrorism from the start. >> the issue is from what was released from cia headquarters on friday afternoon in a unclassified talking point memo to the point that it was changeed to the sunday morning talk shows. there is a gap of about 48 hours that we need to account for and understand why it was changeed. >> all of the intelligence community have told us is that initially they recognized there were extremists and terrorists involveed and thought it came from a protest, that it took them time to sort that out, that there was no political spin in this. >> reporter: the ci attacking points would have gone through numerous hands. the various intelligence agencies, the white house, the state department, the justice department before going out to lawmakers. in washington, molly hennenber

legal adviser of the u.s. state department, in other words, he advises the president on what the law is, was gave a major speech last week at georgetown law, a major figure in international law writing, quote, "domestic courts must play a major role in coordinating u.s. domestic constitutional rules with the rules of foreign and international law. to advance the broader developments of a well-functions international judicial system." well, think about that for a minute. american courts can't coordinate the law from international law. they won't have influence over international law and foreign law, but they can coordinate american law. they can only coordinate american law. in other words, by definition, if this is true, if we coordinate american law with foreign international law, he would have to sub board nate american law. it's the only way this would logically work. the fourth person i'm going to talk about for a minute is ann marie slaughter, head of the office of policy and planning -- or the third person -- at the u.s. state department in the first two years of the obama adminis
arafat. in 1978, u.s. president jimmy carter helped to broker the peace accords between saadat of egypt and prime minister ba begin of israel which paved the way for the 1979 peace treaty between those two countries. the lalt '80s saw the formation of hamas in the west bank and gaza erasing hopes. the oslo accords signed -- establishing recognition of each side between israel and the plo. years of talks followed and marred by disagreement. mahmoud abbas is elected as arafat's successor by the palestinian people. in the same year, israel withdraws from all settlements in gaz in. hamas then wins big in the elections sending a ripple of worry around the world. since then, the back and forth continued with no definitive end to the conflict. let's be clear, this cribbed version of history doesn't begin to explore the complexity. in fact, i sort of picked and chose which moments of the timeline to highlight, which sa i controversial approach to the story of the middle east. even the starting point that i chose can be deemed controversial. others may begin at britain's involvement or in the 19
here in the u.s. as missiles are flying in the holy land. now some arab leaders, threatening to use oil as a weapon against the u.s. and the battle between israelis in gaza already spilng over here. absolutely, brenda, we've seen oil prices rise. and here is a difference between this and other middle east conflicts and this involves israel at this point and of course we are a little and firm ally of israel, it becomes not a fight against israel, it becomes a fight, if you extrapolate against israel and allies, what best way to fight if you're an arab leader to cut offr raise oil prices and that's the problem and that's why this is different and potentially devastating to our gas prices here. >> in fact, toby, we saw the iraq envoy say something to that effect. are you buying in? >>well, they did, and let's also bear in mind, that, both iraq, iran, and any of the people who are saying that we are going to use oil as a weapon are as desperately in need of every dollar into their economy, it may look good on their television, and say that we're going to use oil as a weapon, but economicall
stand by. 75,000 reservists have been called up. will it continue to escalate? u.s. embassador john bolton joins us now as he does every sunday about this time. embassador, good morning. >> good morning eric. >> how does hamas finally stop? >> well, i think hamas is engaged in some very significant escalation of this on again, off again rocket attack against the israelis by launching iranian supplied missiles that landed in or around both tel aviv and jerusalem. longer range rockets. they're not that much more accurate than some of the other rockets that hamas has but the fact they're able to threaten israeli civilian populations is a substantial escalation of what hams has been up 0 to. that's why israel is more concerned now, even than from some earlier rocket attacks, why you've seen the level of israeli air response and why they're obviously considering going in on the ground. >> the discussion of a potential peace deal, an israelly envoy des patched. what type of potential peace deal do you think could be hammered out to stop hamas? >> i don't see if myself. likely what they're
important. now the secretary general ban ki-moon is in cairo. so there's a lot of pressure, the u.s. would certainly like to see a cessation of hostilities, the israelis are anxious for that to happen. they want to see what's going on. one of the things that the israelis point out is that yes, hamas is in charge and they hold that group responsible. but there's other groups in gaza that may not completely been under the control of hamas. that could be one of the problems even though one of the -- saying hamas is responsibility for any rockets that come into israel right now. some of the civilian casualties we saw today, there will be a lot more if israeli tanks or armored personnel carries or israeli troops move into that heavily populated area, but they're saying and the prime minister said today, benjamin net tanya -- netanyahu. >> wolf blitzer -- president obama is monitoring the conflict in the middle east as he travels through asia. today in thailand, he said the u.s. will work with all parties to end the violence. later today, mr. obama makes history when he becomes the first u.s. pr

. meanwhile, u.s. officials moving to deescalate the rising violence, advising israel not to enter gaza, fearing it could draw egypt in to that consulate. and joining us the consulate general, good to see you ambassador. >> thank you for having me. >> dave: the latest what we just said. benjamin netanyahu told the cabinet he's ready to significantly be expand its operation in gaza. is israel prepared for a ground invasion into gaza and what could incite that? >> look the mandate from the inception was to remove this strategic threat posed by thousands of rockets on israelis-- innocent israelis paralyzing our entire southern region. so the goal was to remove that threat and the mandate given to the defense forces from the government was not limited in time nor in scope. so in other words, the possibility of israel moving in with ground forces certainly exists, it depends how the operation develops on the ground. right now, hamas is firing rockets. hamas is still displaying a tremendous degree of aggression towards israel and the purpose of this operation is to eliminate that threat. >> m

the suggestion, the protest explanation was to make sure al qaeda would be unaware of the u.s. intelligence community's suspicions. are they right about that? >> i think you have to remember the context of that. there may have been perhaps an element of undue caution on the part of the intelligence community not wanting to have the names of the specific route they expected were responsible for this. there were a number of reasons for that. they wouldn't want necessarily to know that they were intercepting their electronic communications. the justice department wouldn't want it to be known for reasons that could harm their criminal inquiry. another reason they don't want the information to be out there because it would create a circular information loop and the intelligence community wouldn't know what was the real information and what was the stuff they already put out there. >> there's a number of u.s. state department -- president -- it seems like her statements certainly made the situation more volatile and worse whether she was given bad information or not, right? >> well, certainly, i

, sara. every u.s. president hopes to be the one that ends the israeli/palestinian crisis. but peace has rarely seemed less likely. earlier i spoke with a senior fellow at the hoover institution. he singled out the obama administration for what he calls its indifference. >> we have to go back and re-examine the diplomatic setting, if you will. people will be pushed to say, we can't afford to ignore this region. we can't afford to ignore this conflict because we look back on the last four years and the indifference, if you will, of the obama administration to what's happening on the west bank in gaza. and i think there will be pressure. there will be pressure from egypt, from turkey. there will be pressure from qatar. these are the places that are most sympathetic to hamas. >> discussing the u.s. response to the israeli/palestinian crisis. >>> we've got a lot more planned for you this saturday night. here's what else we're working on. the new reality and a rude awakening for the gop. get with it or keep losing. >>> the new faces of congress, gay, bisexual, hindu. meet those making capitol
